Motherhood: Quarantine Update

Isn't it crazy how quickly things can change?

One day I was planning my return to work full time and Liyana's first day in an infant program - the next day those two things were no longer an option.

As much as I thought those decisions were up to me, in a moment I was no longer in charge. 

It just reminded me-  nothing is ever for certain.

This time at home has been a challenge, especially as a parent of a young child - it's all hands on deck, all the time.

While we have difficult moments, I'm also learning so much more than I could imagine. 

Here's What I've Gained

This time has given me a gift - more time to nurture my little angel with my own hands and heart.

More time for teaching at home, more time for connecting, more time to witness tiny, daily miracles in my own home.

Time to grow love and more time for cuddles. 

This situation has taught me to be present, to stop jumping three steps ahead and to slow down. 

It's taught me the only thing we know for sure, is what is here and now. 

So if you need me, this is where I'll be 📍 living every day moments as a little crew of three.
